Violence against transport workers is a crime
20 April 2016
New laws for assaulting public transport workers now in place
If you assault a public transport worker in South Australia, you could face up to 25 years in jail.
Anyone who attacks a public transport worker in South Australia will face tough penalties of up to 25 years in imprisonment with new laws now introduced to better protect our Adelaide Metro bus, train and tram drivers, passenger service assistants, and taxi and chauffeur vehicle drivers.
One in three transport workers report having been assaulted while at work. The tough new penalties send a clear message that any act of violence towards transport workers will not be tolerated.
The changes to the Criminal Law Consolidation Act 1935 will extend the aggravation of an offence against a public transport worker in the same way that such penalties already apply to offences against police, health and emergency service workers.
Extra security guards for public transport
Security presence is being increased on the public transport network with the introduction of mobile patrols to cover both the rail and bus network and maintain a presence at major stations and bus interchanges.
Additional security presence will be provided:
- on board trains and trams
- at major railway stations, tram stops and bus interchanges
- during special events and incidents
If you witness or are involved in an assault on the public transport network, please call police on 131 444.
For life threatening emergencies please call 000.
A reward of up to $1,000 is offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction.
If you witness illegal behaviour on the public transport network we urge you to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or visit the Crime Stoppers website. You can remain anonymous.
